OUR VISION, MISSION AND VALUES
OUR VISION: Young Carers will be encouraged and inspired to no longer care in the shadows, but with support will gain the confidence to have a voice and make society listen and understand the realities of their plight. This will help to try and reduce the isolation experienced by many young carers and their families; whilst trying to ensure that young carers and their families do not continue to fall below the professional radar, but receive the understanding and support that they deserve and are entitled to; allowing young carers the same life chances as other young people.
OUR MISSION: To provide young carers with a safe environment to gain professional support and reduce the feelings of isolation that so many experience. It is through empowerment and guidance young carers will have the opportunity to develop their life-skills and build resilience; enabling positive participation within their own communities, in-order that they can gain a deeper insight into not only themselves, but of the society and world in which they live.
OUR VALUES: All young carers will feel valued, respected and understood. A person-centred approach will be adopted when working with young carers and their families. We will help to challenge any forms of oppression or discrimination that is encountered by young carers and their families. We will work in partnership with young carers, their families and professionals in-order to safeguard, protect and secure positive outcomes for young carers and we will demonstrate openness, honesty and accountability within our practice.
